You're right its not always but I think the oxygen required to keep those muscles pumped can take away from cardio.. Me personally, I'd pick cardio over strength.

Well you need to condition yourself to go that long and you can anything, which Brock has done!

If you look at the Brock of WWE and the Brock of today you'll see a big defference.

I don't think Lashley's worked anywhere near as hard as Lesnar to get in fighting shape.

Enjoyed the event. Bobby Lashley's lucky that he didn't step up and take on top competition like SF wanted him to. Griggs isn't a bum, but if Lashley really wants to go far in this sport he needs to be beating guys like Griggs. Gurgel-Noons was a great fight. Same old story with Gurgel, choosing to stand with a guy when he has a clear advantage on the ground, but another entertaining war. Was a shame about the illegal knee at the end, but Noons looked fantastic. The power and speed of his punches is just ridiculous, he could seriously wreck some dudes at 155. Would love to see Noons vs Melendez.

Jacare-Kennedy was a weird fight. The 2nd best grappler in the world at 185 (2nd to Maia IMO) chooses to stand with Kennedy for 5 rounds. I guess it paid off in the end, as he did land the more effective strikes, but it was not a particularly impressive performance. His boxing is clearly improving, but he really should have used his Jiu Jitsu more. Kennedy did an excellent job stuffing the takedowns though, so I guess you can't entirely blame Jacare.

Shame for King Mo, was hoping he'd pull out the win, but as soon as he began to look confident on the feet I knew it wouldn't last long. Feijao has some serious power, and was going to land the big shot eventually. The slam in the 1st round was sick, was an epic way to start a fight, but other than that Mo didn't really do too much. Feijao did do a great job though, he generally defended the takedowns well and it seemed only a matter of time before he caught Mo on the feet. Overall, a pretty good event. Not great, but definitely interesting and worth watching. Strikeforce really aren't having much luck with the guys they want to hype though are they. They've tried to hype Henderson, Mousasi, Fedor, Lashley, and now King Mo and they've all lost.

Tiring or not... Lashely dropping hammers on a fighters chin from a mounted position can stop a fight...

That's all gravity with your head trapped between a fist and the canvas....

I'm not saying it was a guarenteed victory that was stripped...

What I'm saying is that it was an absolutly instulting stand up that could have affected the outcome.

If Lashley would have been given mount he would have won the first 2 rounds convincingly although i dont think he would have finished Griggs in that round. He would have had a little time to catch his breath and i think he would have taken him down in the 3rd. If it wasnt for the stand up i think Lashley would have won via Lay and Pray.

Oh and BTW what is wrong with Josh Rosenthal?

The Lashley fight showed how little Lashley has worked on his actual MMA game. He will out wrestle almost all his opponents but he had the opportunity to slap on about 4 subs that a White belt BJJ practicioner would have taken and he didn't even notice. This is MMA not wrestling and until Lasley realises that he'll be an average at best mma fighter.

On a side note I had the Kennedy/Jacre 48-47 Kennedy anyone else see it that way?
